Extraordinary teen John Smith (Pettyfer) is a fugitive on the run from ruthless enemies sent to destroy him. Changing his identity, moving from town to town with his guardian Henri (Olyphant), John is always the new kid with no ties to his past. In the small Ohio town he now calls home, John encounters unexpected, life-changing events - his first love (Agron), powerful new abilities and a connection to the others who share his incredible destiny.Written by

When Henri gives John his phone, he informs him that he'll be calling every hour John is on his own to make sure he's okay, and if John doesn't pick up, Henri will know something is wrong (implying he'll assume the Mogs have attacked John and will come looking for him). During dinner at Sarah's, John reluctantly surrenders his phone after noticing three missed calls from Henri. Despite the fact that John had not answered his phone for three hours, Henri does nothing about it, and does not even mention it at all afterward. See more »

This is not a bad film. It's just not that great. The story feels a bit weak and there are so many plot holes it takes away part of the enjoyment. I also found myself un interested in the characters, apart from the dog, but who doesn't love a cute dog? It just seemed to be cliché after cliché after cliché. I have to remind myself I didn't go to watch shawshank redemption 2 or a William Shakespeare film adaptation. Instead I watched 90 odd minutes of blah. Good special effects and action sequences plus the added bonus of eye candy were just enough to save it. Just.
If you go to see "I am number four" I suggest you leave your brain at home then sit back and enjoy the pretty lights and moving pictures. Don't expect much and you might actually enjoy it.
